Penfolds Rawsons Retreat Private Selection Shiraz Cabernet, 2016, South Eastern Australia
Grape varieties, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon
Bright crimson red in colour with Shiraz fruit dominating on the nose with pepper and spice, dark plum and ripe red fruit aromas. Cedar and oak combine with smoked meat notes and hints of liquorice.
The palate is dense and rich with juicy red berry fruit. Coffee mocha flavours that run through the mid palate add lusciousness and the wine finishes with finely textured tannins. The wine shows perfect balance between cedar, oak and ripe fruit flavours.
This fruit driven wine is ideal for early drinking, and is great with beef, venison and rich pasta dishes.
